Yarovaya: Fight against corruption may destroy sovereignty of state
The Anti-Corruption Committee Head said that a new model of corruption is being formed in the world, when officials act, violating the legitimate interests of the state and the business community.
The task of combating corruption may be used to destroy the sovereignty of the state. This opinion, Vedomosti writes, adheres to Chairman of the Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption of the State Duma Irina Yarovaya.
"We are very concerned about what is happening in Ukraine, where under the guise of fighting corruption, the whole system of state power was destroyed," the deputy said, speaking at the international scientific and practical conference Partnership between the state and business.

Thus, a new model of corruption is formed in the world, when officials act, violating the legitimate interests of the state and the business community. Such a model is unacceptable, it prevents fair competition, Yarovaya insists.
